    I may not be able to smoke for awhile but that's not going to stop me from enjoying this hobby!

    Needed to do some walking today so I figured where better than a few antique stores. Came across this cheap screw stem meer with a case for only $10:

    I'd be lion, if I said that wasn't a great pick up.

    Ugh Ash. I giggled though.

    Can't go wrong for $10, even if it is a screw tenon! Complete with a case too, very nice find!

    Antique stores are great places to find pipes. A couple of my yachtsmen were from one for under $10. Great grab!

    Yes on the mobility!

    Any markings on that Meer by the way? Or on the case?

    No markings on either the pipe or the case that I can find.

    A sawbuck is a mega-deal on that, for sure! Glad you're out/about too, Shane!

    1980s or newer, judging by the case, and a real bargain! I hope it smokes well for you.
